Websites and weight loss...Dec 31, 2021
Can I just vent on how creating a website is a lot like weight loss? In my mind, I think creating a website should take about two weeks which is also the amount of time I think it should take to drop 10 pounds. My plan was to launch my new site on December 1st and to have lost my Covid 10 by December 31st. Here I am, into the new year and still struggling to launch this website and still carting around my Covid 10 and maybe a few extra for good measure. Here we are though at the very beginning of 2022 and I am feeling overwhelmed and stuck. Nothing is as easy as it should be. Every time I think I'm close to launching the site or close to losing the weight some road block pops up. A link doesn't work or I forgot my lunch. A Call To Action button goes to a 404 page or I eat to + 5. I'm exasperated with forms that don't work and journaling that doesn't happen. I'm over it!
Fun fact though, I'm creating this drama all on my own. I can hit publish and launch my website at anytime. It's not perfect but it's done. I can return to planning my food and writing down what I actually eat. So what is holding me back? Why my big ole brain of course. I promise, it's not the holidays, or delivering babies, or being tired. It's certainly not that tired story I tell myself how I'm not tech savvy. Nope. It's just how I'm thinking about both. My brain has me believing that launching a website AND losing 10 pounds is HARD. And if I think something is going to be hard then it will be. Time for a come to Jesus moment with my brain. Creating a website unleashes my creativity (and keeps me off the streets). Following my eating plan allows me freedom from food. Neither of those things sound particularly hard.
